Tom

One of Tom's favorite quotes is, "I have the great privilege of being both witness and storyteller. Intimacy, trust and intuition guide my work." ~Jim Goldberg.

Tom believes the best images come from the natural moments that happen in real life. His intent is to document the reality of a wedding day. He loves the laughter, tears, and all the emotions that a wedding day has to offer. Tom loves that its his job to preserve these moments.

Tom's passion for wedding photography came on the day of his brother's wedding. He was the best man and had his camera on him 100% of the day, shooting all candids. This is how Tom found his journalistic approach to weddings. He had such a great time that he knew right then and there that this was the direction he wanted to pursue in photography.

Ralph

Ralphs passion for photography came in high school shooting sports 6 years ago. The thrill and adrenaline shooting sports really got him started in the photography world. His love for wedding photography came about after attending his Aunts wedding 4 years ago. Having his camera, taking photos of family and friends throughout the night really hit home that night. The emotions, the excitement, the atmosphere, after that day he knew this was the right path for him. Ralph is very personable with his couples. He always keeps them entertained and makes sure they feel most comfortable when capturing their big day. To be able to provide a couple with a life time full of touching moments to look back on is what really drives him.
